Authorities Search For Answers In Deadly India Plane Crash

May 22, 2010

India (ChattahBox) – Authorities are searching for the black box of a plane that crashed in India earlier today, killing all but eight of the 166 passengers on board.

The tragic crash occurred when the large plane overshot the runway while coming in for a landing, crashing into it and bursting into flames, ejecting a few passengers but killing most of the others on board.

A few others were able to scramble out of the wreckage.

It isn’t clear what went wrong, but an equipment failure is a clear possibility.

“As head of the civil aviation family I feel very saddened and a great sense of anguish,” Aviation Minister Praful Patel said in an official statement to the press.

“I also feel personally morally responsible that such a sad and tragic incident has taken place.”
